Lathem CT72 - State of the Art

The CloudTouch Model CT72 is Lathem's fingerprint clock in reader and proximity badge scan time clock system. CloudTouch's fingerprint time clock enrollment wizard lets you add employees fingerprints in less than 30 seconds encrypting fingerprint images before sending them to the biometric engine for verification. An advanced employee fingerprint clocking in machine, the CT72 fingerprint and thumbprint scanner utilizes precise optical fingerprint scanning technology to achieve excellent image quality and superior reliability. A silicone coating allows it to read a wide range of fingerprints accurately including dry, moist or rough fingerprints.

Employees simply scan their fingerprints to verify their identity and automatically create a timestamp. This stamp is synced to a timesheet which allows managers to quickly access important data and is synced with payroll to ensure employees receive accurate and fair payment for their hours.

Lathem CT72 - Built To Work In The Cloud

The fingerprint clock in software is reliable and convenient. You can count on it to ensure the employee data you need is easily accessible and secure even when the unexpected occurs.

Lathem CT72 - Fully Interactive Touchscreen

CloudTouch time clocks have a modern LCD touch screen interface that allows employees' to clock in and out, check their totals, change departments, add amounts, and more. A large display shows the employee the time they punched in/out, their total worked hours for that period and even messages from their supervisor.

A thumbprint time clock can be seamlessly integrated into your facilities and is, most importantly, easy to use. With one press of the fingerprint scanner your employees can update their time card. At the same time, supervisors can check the time and attendance systems in real time to make changes and more.

The fully interactive fingerprint time card system is intuitive to use while still offering superior functionality for employees and supervisors alike.

Lathem CT72 - Multiple Methods for Recording Your Employees' Time

The fingerprint time clock offers employees different options to clock in/clock out and access information from the touch screen display. You can set up it up as a clock in machine system using employee fingerprints and thumbprints or employees can use the clock with the convenience of swiping a proximity badge, optional key fob or entering a personal PIN. You can even setup secure door access or signaling via internal relay control.
